A Crazy Clever Tip for the Best Mac & Cheese

This tip is courtesy of the ever-useful internet, via The Kitchn. 100 points if you can guess it…

The next time you make Mac & Cheese (which should be in your near future, riiiight?), boil your pasta in milk. Doing so ensures that you get the creamiest, richest results, since the pasta absorbs some of the liquid, and none of the milk goes to waste, because you incorporate it into the final sauce.

Gah. Genius, right? I’m definitely trying this (see the full write up and instructions here).

P.S. What’s your favorite Mac & Cheese recipe? Martha Stewart’s has a cult following, but with an entire stick of butter, I’m always hesitant to make it on a weeknight…
